week in photographs #40/41

Saturday, October 12, 2013
Yet another two weeks has gone by and it is time for my week in photographs post - my fortnightly life update. The main things that happened over the past two weeks: Shopping (surprise, surprise), dying my hair, autumn has arrived, halloween makeup and nails, writing blog posts/reviews, writing my CV, blog milestones, facetime with my sister, being a bit ill still and eczema flare ups! 

Firstly, shopping! There have been quite a few new releases recently from makeup brands such as the new Vaseline limited edition lip balm which I love! Revlon have also released their chalkboard nails which I am interested to try out and their have been a few exciting makeup releases that I am super excited about - the Chanel winter collection (I am getting that gorgeous palette) and I saw that Hourglass are bringing out a ambient lighting powder trio set - I haven't tried any of those infamous powders but the set would be a great way to try them out - I need! 

Also this week, I dyed my hair as you will have seen in my Autumn lookbook post, click here to see the post. I used the Schwarzkopf colour mask dye in dark brown and I love the colour but I don't think I would buy this dye again which is a shame because I love the other Schwarzkopf dyes I have used in the past. As it is getting closer to halloween I have been experimenting with some halloween makeup looks such as clowns, dolls, vampires, and the joker from batman which is the look above - it has been so so fun, I love experimenting with makeup and I hope you like the halloween makeup series I will be posting over the next two weeks! 

Favourite TV shows: 2 Broke Girls - I cannot express how much I love this series, I have series 1 on dvd from amazon, love it!I have also been loving the BBC series Peaky Blinders. 

Favourite skincare items: Ren hydracalm cleanser (a recent repurchase and I am so glad I have it again), the Organic Surge super intensive moisturiser and the Avene water spray. I have had a horrible eczema flare up the past week or so and these products have been helping.

Favourite makeup items: Vaseline paint the town lip balm (a gorgeous shade!), Dr Jart Platinum BB cream and the Sleek oh so special palette.
